Blacktip Reef Play

Our brand-new exhibit, replicating an Indo-Pacific ocean habitat, feature 15 exciting species including blacktip reef sharks, reticulated whiptail rays and ornate wobbegong sharks! It is also the new home for some of our most beloved animals, including our 400 pound green sea turtle Calypso and zebra sharks Zeke and Zoe. Guests can experience this lively reef from many vantage points, including a new floor-to-ceiling pop-out viewing window that allows you to virtually step inside the exhibit.

It was a long journey to opening day. With animal transports, exhibit demolition, new construction, habitat fabrication as well as the acquisition of new animals, check out our playlist full of behind-the-scenes updates. As our exhibit continues to evolve and grow, stay tuned to our YouTube channel for updates and be sure to check out aqua.org/blacktipreef!
